And that's understandable given his early domination when the pair last clashed in August.
Whyte had comfortably outboxed Povetkin in the garden of Matchroom Boxing's headquarters.
The 32-year-old TWICE sent Povetkin to the canvas in the fourth round and looked destined to set up a mega-money fight for the WBC belt.
However, Povetkin summoned a devastating left uppercut in the fifth to claim a dramatic win.
If you think we'll see a similar fight on Saturday, then new William Hill customers can claim odds of 20/1* on there being 1+ knockdown.
The British fighter will now look to avenge his knockout defeat.
But research from William Hill suggests it might not be as straightforward as many believe.

The bookmaker analysed rematches involving every current heavyweight boxer in the top 15 WBA, WBC, WBO and IBF rankings.
And the outcome is that only 6 per cent of first-time losers have gone on to seal revenge in the follow-up bout.
34 heavyweight boxers were analysed with 17 fights leading to a rematch, with a mammoth 88% of original winners going on to claim back-to-back victories.
Just 6% of the fights started with a draw before the rematch was settled with a victory – Tyson Fury’s eventual win over Deontay Wilder.
Of the 34 fighters analysed, Tyson Fury, Deontay Wilder and Derek Chisora have been involved in the most rematches with three each.
Whyte will be fighting in his second after previously disposing of Chisora with back-to-back wins, while Povetkin has never previously been involved in a rematch.
A William Hill spokesperson said: "If the first fight between Dillian Whyte and Alexander Povetkin is anything to go by, we’re all set for a thrilling second bout this weekend, with Whyte desperate to gain revenge over the Russian.
"However, Whyte may want to look away now, as if our research is anything to go by then the odds are well and truly stacked against him.
"Of the heavyweight rematches we analysed, a mega 88% of them saw the original winner claim another victory, while just 6% of them involved the loser avenging the first defeat.
"History looks to be on the side of Povetkin on Saturday, but it will be a fascinating watch to see if Whyte can rewrite the record books in Gibraltar."
